This versatile banner weathervane effortlessly combines decorative elegance with practical functionality, gracefully turning in response to the wind's direction, providing both an eye catching rooftop accent and a reliable weather indicator.

    While the classic terracotta hue of our standard ridge tile fitting is timeless, we offer an extensive array of colours and finishes to ensure the perfect match for your home's aesthetic.

    Opting for this banner weathervane and ridge tile fitting over conventional brackets offers numerous advantages. Installers often prioritize maintaining the roof's integrity to prevent water infiltration, making this weathervane's installation a low hassle process. The ridge tile fitting, with its adaptability to various angles, seamlessly mortars into the roof, ensuring a swift and straightforward installation. For added stability and security, an optional strong metal strap can be used as a mechanical fix fitting for the weathervane. Featuring multiple predrilled holes, the adjustable strap can be securely attached to the roof using screws, nails, or suitable methods. Installers can then employ standard mortar techniques to discreetly conceal the metal strap beneath the ridge base, enhancing stability and ensuring peace of mind during installation.

They also serve as captivating garden ornaments, adding intricate details and eye catching features to outdoor spaces.

  • How to fit and install

    There are several ways to install roof finials, as outlined below:

    Traditional mortar bedding:

    Roof finials can be installed following the same method used for ridge tiles, utilising standard mortar bedding. In cases where the finial is tall or heavy, or if enhanced stability is desired, an additional mechanical fix method can be employed alongside the mortar bed installation.

    Mechanical fixing strap and mortar bedding:

    For this type of install, a galvanized metal strap is included, discreetly fastened to the underside of the finial ridge base during manufacturing. This durable and flexible metal strap can be adjusted in length by cutting it down to size. Featuring a series of holes, the strap can be screwed, nailed, or embedded in mortar to anchor it to a section of the roof structure. After securing the metal strap, installers can conceal it from sight by applying traditional mortar bed. The mortar used to join the finial with adjacent ridge tiles effectively conceals the strap, resulting in a seamless and neat appearance.

    Dry fixing:

    Another approach to affixing finials to the roof involves the dry fixing method. This technique involves using a specific manufacturer's dry fixing system, typically incorporating brackets or alternative mechanical fasteners to attach ridge tiles and finials to the roof without the use of mortar. If you are considering a dry fix ridge system, please get in touch with us to determine if this finial design can be adapted to be compatible with your chosen system.
